riley poole

tbh it’s only now that I realise how much riley from national treasure is me

Riley ain’t got time for yo pretentious shit

he reacts the correct way to scary stuff

we’ve both got 1 thing on our minds

and 100% know what to do when shit gets real

i am riley

riley is me

  • What she says: I'm fine
  • What she means: Why doesn't Riley Poole from National Treasure have a fandom? He's geeky and smart and adorable and also a huge dork - everything tumblr loves. Why doesn't he have more fans? Why aren't there a million blogs dedicated to worshiping his awesome dorkiness? Why don't I see gifs of him all over my dash? Why is there no Riley x reader fanfic? Why is he so underappreciated? I DON'T UNDERSTAND
It's 2am and I have work tomorrow so logically I decided it was the perfect time to rewatch national treasure:

1) I forgot nick cages characters full name is Benjamin Franklin Gates (lololololol)

2)❤️riley poole❤️

3) is it still impossible to marry fictional characters. because riley poole.

4) not enough zombies.

5) not enough riley poole.

6) nick cages hair in this movie is atrocious. though no worse than his hair in any other of his movies so

7) “I’M GOING TO STEAL THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE”

8) one time in eighth grade I went to DC and saw that room that has that declaration. I wish I’d thought to steal it.

9) riley poole.

10) everyone knows the washington monument looks like like a penis right?

11) is this movie really 12 years old? Jesus.

12) where is national treasure 3, I’m owed.

13) how did riley and nick cage even meet I feel like that’s important backstory.

14) NATIONAL TREASURE 3 SHOULD BE A PREQUEL

15) sometimes I forget science is a thing. I need to stock up on lasers and invisible finger print solution.

16) this is the best movie

17) I hate in movies how people ring the bell and the door gets answered immediately. no one sits at the front door and waits for the doorbell to ring.

18) THERES A MAP ON THE BACK AND NOW EVERYONE BELIEVES

19) I forgot diane kruger has an accent.

20) RILEY POOLE IS THE NATIONAL TREASURE JUST TRY TO CONVINCE ME OTHERWISE

21) the part with benjamin franklins stupid looking glasses is my favorite: “I found some kind of ocular device” SHUT UP NICK CAGE THEY’RE GLASSES YOU’RE NOT FANCY

22) “spectacles” STILL GLASSES NICK CAGE STFU

23) never mind my favorite part is when she hides behind the meat counter from her “ex husband” and the sassy black lady saves her bacon (hehehe see what I did there)

24) it’s good that everyone in this movie has terrible aim with a gun. Otherwise it’d be a much shorter movie.

25) BAD GUY GOT THE DECLARATION OH NOOOOO

26) god can you imagine what this movie would have looked like with anyone other than nick cage?

27) see good guys and bad guys can work together if they both want the same thing badly enough

28) NEVER MIND MY FAVORITE PART IS THE UNVEILING OF THE TREASURE ROOM WITH THE FIRE AND SHIT THAT GOES DOWN THE TRACK AND ILLUMINATES EVERYTHING

29) THIS IS THE BEST MOVIE

30) SO MUCH TREASURE

31) RILEY POOLE

32) aaaaand bad guy is going to jail. all in a day’s work.

33) aaawwwww riley loves his Porsche. I love riley. The end. Now it’s 4am and I’m going to bed.
